A note about penguins to celebrate World Penguin Day.Read More
Last year, I was able to travel to the Antarctic region - an amazing and unforgettable experience. One moment stood out to me, and luckily I was able to catch all three minutes of it on my GoPro camera.
While in Gold Harbour on South Georgia Island, a juvenile elephant seal lumbered up to me (and others) looking for affection. This was a wonderful moment that I am lucky to have experienced and am honored to share with you. Please enjoy!
This particular day was the day after Christmas, and was an amazing gift.
Six months ago today, I stared into these eyes as he waddled up to me and snuggled me on the beach of South Georgia Island. That afternoon, I visited the largest King Penguin colony in South Georgia, and it was just magical.
December 26, 2013 was definitely a magical and memorable day.
Thank you for allowing me to share my experiences with you.
This planet is full of amazing things, and I feel so lucky to have seen a remote part of the Earth last December. This is a King penguin rookery at St. Andrews Bay on South Georgia Island, home to about 250,000 (count 'em) King penguins.
